Mr. Monk & The High Rating
20 January 2020 | by thatgirlmyra-9946See all my reviews

I loved Monk so much! Even after Sharona left, I managed to still enjoy it, despite the more wooden addition of Natalie.

My only complaint is that starting at around Season 7 was that Monk became bit more... entitled? Rude? I'm not entirely sure what changed, but Adrien became slightly less endearing and more rude to his colleagues.

But either way, I was very sad to say goodbye to the family of Adrien, Stottlemeyer, Randy, and even Natalie. I'd recommend this show if you want a few laughs and fun mysteries.
